    yes, I like that idea very much ! Thank you ![/quote]

    Find some quirky name, that seems to "fit" her character.
    Beatrice? Gladys? ... oh you could have SO much fun with this!!

    I'm going to research some old Kentucky Appalachia names. She is worn, lived hard and still has joy.. look at her stitches !!
    Thanks !

    How wonderful that you have this from your gram. I learned to hand quilt with such a lady as this way back in the late '70s. Loved those quilters.

    I have a quilter picture also. My sister found it in Arizona and sent it to me in Tennessee. It is a lady from the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee.

    OH! She has the same weathered look !
    Have you named her?

    It is signed. I just sent my picture to the artist and asked if this was his.. Hard to read the sigature. Your's is very well written.

    Thanks for sharing !!

    Notice her little hunched back. OK ladies, I know I want to hunch after a long day on the sewing machine or pieceing by hand. Hah!

    Maybe it's just this the Dowagers Hump. ha ha.. I love these pictures !!
    Forward Head Posture and Dowagers Hump. As we age our spines gradually collapse causing us to hunch forward and stick our heads out.

    No her name is on the inside. I had to take the pic apart and clean because of mold but I didn't write down the name when I resealed the print.... I know you love yours as I love mine.

    I'm sure my great grandmother who died 10 years before I was born would have looked just like this. She did pass on the quilting gene to me...such a shame that it had to skip two generations. My mother and grandmother were crocheters..not quilters so I had to start from scratch.

    What a nice image for your sewing room. The family connection makes it special too.
